Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page has been crowned the most handsome man in the world, according to ancient scientific research.
The 34-year-old actor, played Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings in the hit Netflix series, was found to be 93.65 per cent accurate to the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, which measures physical perfection.
Men In Black star Chris Hemsworth was second with 93.5 3per cent, Black Panther hunk Michael B Jordan was third with 93.46 per cent and singer Harry Styles was fourth with 92.30per cent.
The list was compiled using the latest computerised mapping techniques by Harley Street facial cosmetic surgeon Dr Julian De Silva, who uses the technology in his work.

What is the Golden Ratio of Phi and how is it calculated?
The Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi originates from the European Renaissance. Artists and Architects used an equation – known as the Golden Ratio – as an aid during the creation of their masterpieces.
The ratio can be applied to anything and was used by Leonardo Da Vinci for the perfect human male body in his famous work, the Vitruvian Man.
Scientists have since adapted the mathematical formula to explain what makes a person beautiful.
The length and the width of someone’s face is measured and then the results are divided.
The premise is that the closer the ratios of a face or body are to the number 1.618 (Phi), the more beautiful they become.
Measurements are then taken from the forehead hairline to the spot between the eyes, from the spot between the eyes and the bottom of the nose and from the bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin.
A person is considered to be more beautiful if the numbers are equal.
Attention is then given to the symmetry and proportion of the face. To be deemed ‘beautiful’ according to the Golden Ratio, the length of the ear must be equal to the length of the nose and the width of an eye should be equal to the distance between the eyes.
Dr De Silva explained: ‘These brand new computer mapping techniques allow us to solve some of the mysteries of what it is that makes someone physically beautiful and the technology is useful when planning patients’ surgery.’
